The Ivory Coast international missed the 5-1 Boxing Day victory over Stoke after collecting his fifth booking of the season, but is likely to go straight back into the starting line-up.

Manager Alan Pardew, who replaced Tiote with Hatem Ben Arfa against the Potters, has no fresh injury concerns with midfielder Jonas Gutierrez recovering from a calf problem.

Provisional squad: Krul, Elliot, Debuchy, Coloccini, Williamson, Yanga-Mbiwa, S. Taylor, Santon, Dummett, Haidara, Tiote, Anita, Cabaye, Marveaux, Sissoko, Ben Arfa, Gutierrez, Sammy Ameobi, Bigirimana, Obertan, Cisse, Remy, Gouffran, Shola Ameobi.
